Carmenta is proud to announce the release of Carmenta Engine for Android

31 May 2013 ,

Carmenta Engine for Android is the full, feature-rich Carmenta Engine GIS solution in a version suitable for the Android operating system. It contains components and tools that enable software developers to rapidly add dynamic map displays and other geospatial functions to a wide range of mission critical mobile applications.

Johan Holmqvist, Vice President Product Marketing at Carmenta says, “This is a very exciting product release that will support our customers’ mobile initiatives. We have spent considerable time, together with our customers, in order to optimise the most important features from a mobility aspect, while safeguarding the full range of capabilities that are available in our core product Carmenta Engine.”

Key benefits

  • High performance and efficient battery usage. Thanks to a highly optimised low-level core, a hardware accelerated map rendering pipeline and multi-core execution, applications using Carmenta Engine for Android are both responsive and battery efficient.
  • Efficient use of resources. The modular design of Carmenta Engine ensures that the Android version has a low memory footprint and very fast start-up time.
  • Offline or online maps. By using Carmenta Engine, developers gain full flexibility in how their Android applications read maps. It is possible to build everything from always-connected systems which retrieve maps from OGC compliant servers, such as Carmenta Server, to disconnected systems which are preloaded with battery efficient map packages.
